Mission Statement

The Ryan Cameron Foundation is dedicated to creating healthy transitions from childhood to adulthood with resources and programs designed to empower, inspire, educate and encourage positive growth.

Description

ANTI-VIOLENCE INITIATIVE

The Youth Anti-Violence Forum will employ a task force built of representatives of diverse groups who will work toward increasing our youth's awareness on the issue of violence. The Youth Anti-Violence Essay Contest, which began Dec. 6, 2010, asked students ages 11-19 to submit Anti-Violence essays, poetry and artwork representing the topics of bullying, gang violence and teen driver safety. Winners will be selected and awarded at the 6th Annual Youth Golf Clinic. Winners will receive scholarships to go toward school expenses along with monetary awards.

YOUTH GOLF

The Youth Golf Clinic Program is one of the extraordinary outreach programs that is offered by the RCF. The program will serve 40 of Atlanta's Youth with a motivational speaker, kids' golf clinic with golf pros, nine hole golf experience, and an award reception. RCF partners an adult mentor with a foursome of youth in an effort to allow some of Atlanta's youth to have hours with some of Atlanta's finest with the goal of "Empowering Leaders of Tomorrow".

FATHER DAUGHTER DANCE

This is the foundation's annual gala event that is designed to strengthen the bond between a father and his daughter. Held on Father's Day, this elegant affair allows daughters as young as 2 years of age to be treated like ladies by their dads. It's a day neither father or daughter will forget.

YOUTH HEALTH FAIR

The program entitled Healthy, Stronger, Living Longer supports the RCF healthy lifestyle incentive by providing a free Youth Health Fair addressing Obesity, Diabetes, Sickle Cell Anemia, Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Asthma, Vision, and Dental Awareness. RCF provides health education workshops such as diabetes awareness, childhood obesity, fun at-home fitness, healthy lifestyle and cooking instruction, your family medical history and portion control. Free testing will be provided by 50 of Atlanta's top medical doctors and their staffs. This program is for the entire family that targets the youth. however, we are looking to make a difference in our youth now so it will target our youth but not exclusively.

CELEBRITY BOWLING CHALLENGE

Celebrating the true meaning of the holiday, this fundraiser is in its 20th year. 100% of the funds raised this year will benefit the Ryan Cameron Foundation to continue its programs.
